Food Hangover

Last night I intentionally ate something with a lot of calories and fat. Why intentionally? Because (and this may be TMI) I have been having difficulty with #2. Not completely constipated but it has been very difficult to pass.

The basic questions that come to most people's mind in this situation:

Are you hydrated enough? - Yep - almost a gallon a day!
Are you eating enough fiber? - Yep - lots of fruit and veggies every day!

I think the one thing I have not been having a lot of is fat. Honestly almost everything I eat is nearly fat free (because it is fruit and veggies). So last night I ate a sausage and cheese calzone and some pie in the hopes that it might loosen me up a little.

So far - NOPE! GRRR. And it's left me with what I consider a Food Hangover. Honestly it is probably dehydration from all the salt that is in those foods, but I just feel sickly.

I guess I'll just have to wait for it to pass..literally. (hope that made you chuckle).

I'm resting today because my arms are so SORE from Pilates yesterday. The good sore, muscle working sore. That makes me happy. I already signed up for next Wednesday.


  1. Well, crap! No, just wishing you the best. Ok, enough of me being disgusting and crude. Sorry that you're going through this, I DO think you're onto something though. You definitely have to have some fat in your diet. When I'm "stuffed up" I usually eat some bread with EVOO and Balsamic Vinigrette. I love the stuff and it really helps loosen things up. Drink that water too!!!! Much love!

  2. Trying to think what makes me go poo... the only thing I can think of right now is a sub from Subway or apples. Does it for me every time!
